NASHVILLE, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says a man has been arrested in the disappearances of three people, and it's working to identify three bodies found this week.

News outlets report the agency says the bodies have been sent to its Macon medical examiner's office for autopsy. Twenty-year-old Jonathan Douglas Vann, of Nashville, Georgia, was arrested Wednesday, the same day two of the bodies were found. It's unclear what charges, if any, have been filed against him.

The Berrien County Sheriff's Office responded to a vehicle fire Tuesday and determined the car was used by 22-year-old Bobbielynn Moore. Deputies later learned that Moore, her boyfriend and his 17-year-old sister weren't responding to attempts to contact them.

A vigil was held Thursday for Moore, 27-year-old Ronnie Wayne Hackle, Jr. and Mercedes Maelyn Hackle.
